On March 27th, 2011, episode 97 of Dragon Ball Kai aired in Japan (and 98 was released later on DVD/Blu-ray) concluding the Cell arc and seemingly ending the series having only covered two thirds of the original story. Understandably, that left many fans unsatisfied.
Now, almost exactly three years later, Dragon Ball Kai is set to resume airing in Japan on April 6th and will cover the Majin Buu arc to complete the series. The official Japanese Dragon Ball Kai website has been updated with new information and a promotional video which you can watch in the embed above. Keep your eyes peeled for what looks like freshly animated scenes from the Goku vs. Vegeta fight which will most likely be used in a new opening or ending sequence.
Dragon Ball Kai (known as Dragon Ball Z Kai stateside) is a remastered, filler-less retelling of Dragon Ball Z that focuses on the original material from the manga. As with the original Dragon Ball Z anime series, FUNimation produces the English version for the US.
Are you ready for more spiky hair and kamehamehas?
Cant wait for FUNimation to dub this!
You and me both! The FUNimation Kai dub (especially the uncut version) is easily some of FUNimation’s best work in my opinion. I’m really glad this series is being finished, it was extremely unsatisfying when it just stopped at the end of the Cell arc.
